Abstract: The purpose of this Study is to investigate the need and level of federal involvement in the reconstruction of aging facilities in the Louisville Metro Flood Protection System, which serves over 215,000 residents and approximately 80,000 structures according to the National Structure Inventory 2.0 (NSI2). In general, the predominant issues with the LMFPS are: (1) the reliability of out-of-date and failing equipment at pump stations where replacement parts are no longer available; and (2) closures, gates and floodwall segments that have exceeded their expected service life or degraded. Specifically, this Study addresses the reconstruction opportunity to reduce the annual flood risk and resulting property damages incurred by residents, business owners, and the government, as well as the feasibility associated with this reconstruction.
